Construction has begun on the $1.8 million Geraldton Universities Centre expansion.

Centre director Natalie Nelmes said the building expansion would include extra classrooms, an Aboriginal study space and 24-hour study access for all students.

She said the funding would also enable further course development, including dedicated courses and support for Aboriginal students.

The funding was one of 16 Federal Government grants totalling $24.2 million to assist in the establishment and operation of community-owned regional study hubs across Australia.
